Contax 645 <3 <3 <3 Too bad they're retardedly overpriced. Same goes for Mamiyas, but what can you do about it eh? Is it me or did you have another line in your gear list, sub? I shall make a thread about a switch to film with a poll.

i had a chance to tinker with a Contax yesterday, and lemme tell ya, the AF sucks major ass compared to the Mamiya AF. Turrible. And yeah, I had a couple of other bodies listed in my sig, but it just looked too huge. It was just my AE-1 and K1000 anyhow,

Don't forget about Pentax. I love mine. It's a bit quirky at times, but the pictures are so good, it more than makes up for it. Also, the optics are excellent and quite reasonably priced (as long as you stick to the A*, not the FA*). I saw some lab tests a while back that showed that the pentax 35/3.5 was quite a bit sharper than the wide angle lenses for both hasselblad and mamiya. The 25 is not good though. Avoid it unless you want to photoshop every photo you take to remove CA.

EDIT: I just went to order more astia, and it's all gone. Looks like I'll have to use ektachrome from now on, though I have a feeling it isn't going to last long either.

Lent 120-300 out for two weeks for free, get it back smells like old people. VERY VERY concentrated old people smell too. Guy is super pissed when I tell him I want him to get smell out (pay 80 for lenscoat), talk to mutual friend, apparently thats unreasonable. Need to vent somewhere. doesn't make any sense.

How does something even smell like that?

What he said. There's only two or three people I'd ever let use my equipment, and that's because I'm 100% sure that something like ^that will never happen with them.

Just wash the lenscoat with laundry detergent. It gets rid of old people smell in my clothes every time I have to stay at relatives' houses.

You really should be more careful about who you loan stuff to though. It could've been a lot worse than a bad smell.

In other news, I just started designing my DIY field camera. Here's what I've come up with so far (this is just a first draft)

EPSON001-1.jpg

EPSON002-2.jpg

EPSON003.jpg

EPSON004.jpg

Thoughts? I went with a triple extension design, but limited it to double extension so I can control the tripod location. It uses four inch lensboards so I can interchange them with my graphic view. I thought about doing a 5x7, but decided against it, because it would be expensive to buy all new film holders for such a small increase in size. If this works out well, I'll probably eventually do another one in 8x10 or larger.

Adorama has a pretty nice deal on the 5D Mk II at the moment.. $1999 BNIB w/ bag, some random software, etc.. Yeah, the 15% off sale is still happening for refurbs, and I've never had a problem with refurbs, but I feel like I'd want to get a 5Dii NIB, mostly because they're (apparently) more rare refurbished units.

I'd actually consider this relatively quickly if I could find a buyer for my 5Dc/Grip/etc..
